Riverdale and Archie Comics were far from the only one with something to say after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their first son’s name was Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor.

Immediately, Twitter went into overdrive to try to piece together where the name came from.
With no obvious muses in either of their families, many jumped to the conclusion that the baby had been named after one of two cultural icons.
Dependent on the generation of the commentator, the choices were the aforementioned Archie Andrews or Archie Bunker from the 70s show All In The Family.
Archie Andrews, the fictional Riverdale character, is played by actor KJ Apa in the Netflix and CW series.
The couple have not revealed why they chose the name but there are already theories abound.
Archie is a shortened version of the Scottish name, Archibald, and Harrison means son of Henry or Harry, a fitting tribute to his father.

The child’s name was revealed on the couple’s Instagram account this afternoon, four hours after the beaming pair first showed their 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg) child to the world, during which Prince Harry described him as a ‘little bundle of joy’.
It’s believed that during the intervening period, the couple went to visit the Queen. With Meghan describing it as a ‘nice moment to introduce the baby to more family.’
The baby boy will not have a royal title like Kate and Williams’ children, Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one, but will be known simply as Master Archie after George V limited titles within the family during the First World War.
